We originally bought this to accommodate the husband's Ortlieb briefcase bag. The bag is incredibly wide, and this rack was the only one that could be set back far enough to avoid heel strike. Unfortunately, the whole setup moved his center of gravity too much and made the bike unstable. I gave it 4 stars because it's specifically not made for touring bikes which have rack bosses and a longer wheelbase, so the center of gravity problem is likely to happen for a lot of people using this with a road bike and setting it as far back as it will go. But if you avoid this pitfall, as we have by getting a narrower bag and moving the rack a bit closer, it is otherwise well-designed. Installation was a snap, the rack feels sturdy, and the design allows for lots of different bag attachment points. Overall I think it's a great rack for the price.
Thank you for your feedback.
